Heart Failure

More than 5 million people in the U.S. are living with heart failure.

Despite its name, heart failure doesn’t mean that a heart has stopped or is about to stop beating. It isn’t a sudden or dramatic change either — it develops following damage to the heart caused by a heart attack, long-term high blood pressure or a valve abnormality.

Heart failure care at INTEGRIS is provided by our Advanced Cardiac Care specialists. For patients whose hearts are irreversibly damaged and where therapy alone won’t suffice, heart-assist devices and heart transplants can be options. Watch the videos below for more on what the diagnosis means and possible treatment options. To learn more, call 405-949-3011.
